In a future world devastated by disease, a convict is sent back in time to gather information about the man-made virus that wiped out most of the human population on the planet.
The "TV Ball" prop was notoriously problematic, with either the electronics or hydraulics breaking almost every time it was used.
Jose - psst! Jose, what's going on?
Jose: Bad news, man
James Cole: Volunteers?
Jose: Yeah. And they said your name.

The symbol of the 12 Monkeys provides the backdrop for the opening and closing credits.
